International College ASEAN Talented Scholar Development Grant – IATSDG

What is IATSDG?

The International College ASEAN Talented Scholar Development Grant (IATSDG) is designed to provide educational support for economically disadvantaged students in the ten nations of ASEAN.  The grant is primarily offered for undergraduate students who are enrolling in the International College and other English-based Faculties at Payap University.  Four Baccalaureate Degrees are offered.

This grant will address unmet financial needs and give hope to those without hope. In the process of providing an education that would otherwise not be possible, the IATSDG grant will improve the quality of life and set people free from bondage by providing University education through a sustainable scholarship program.



The goal of the grant is to support education for students who are disadvantaged in ASEAN to pursue Tertiary studies.
